and they think it's immoral that the federal government has the debt, they don't like the credit card debt that they are care inning their house. a good issue, if you look at all the polls across the spectrum, yes governor romney did very well in this focus group, but he did well across the board with all demographics. a good message that works with one group if it's really good and delivered well they work with all of them. megyn: that is the question about whether governor romney can keep this rolling and get momentum going now with the key voting groups that have been somewhat problematic for him thus far. chris stirewalt thank you. we have frank luntz coming up. we have overnight polling in the debate. with two polls we will debate what the campaign needs to do to bounce back. new developments. a contract fight at american airlines. it hats interrupted flights for 150,000 -fl travelers in just weeks. new worries about the fighting in syria along with growing foreign policy terrance. that's where the candidates are going next, they will debate foreign policy as a new report shows our co
the message in this speech was the federal government doesn't like you because you are black. and then you've seen a lot of folks in the mainstream media come out and say that's not a news story, this is old tape, you know, at least portions of it were run -- tucker says not the relevant portions. so there's a real question about what, if any, impact this has on this presidential race four-and-a-half weeks out, almost five weeks out from election day. your thoughts? >> well, megyn, think about it this way for barack obama at that time when he was, as mike emanuel said, a long shot, the thing he was trying to do was consolidate the black vote bekind him. he went down there to establish himself as the black candidate in the race because there was no way he was going to beat hillary clinton or the other candidates like john edwards and others who were ahead of him in line. he needed to consolidate the black vote, and he went down there, and he told an african-american audience what they wanted to hear. he gave them the rhetoric and used the sort of dialect that he thought would go over well w
as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like europe, we know what happened there. number two we are spending $9 billion every week just paying interest on
, of course, the reality of governance and the reality of what he was able to do and what he really wanted to do and what his priorities were didn't necessarily match up with the rhetoric of 2008. so they may be feeling a little disillusioned. the other thing is democrats who think that mitt romney stinks and is a terrible candidate, and the republicans are absolute cuckoo birds. the fact that romney could box the president's ears on wednesday, that mitt romney could beat him probably doesn't do much to make people feel good about the way their candidate's odds are. megyn: yeah. it's led to even the new yorker, which is not exactly a right-leaning publication, we got a sneak peek of their cover, and it shows romney behind his lectern, and he's arguing against the empty chair, the title will be "one-on-one," we're told. if any event, it's just one indication of where this election may stand as of today anyway. chris, thank you. >> you bet. megyn: well, the enthusiasm polling is only one of a dramatic series of surveys in the last 48 hours. we will speak with a university of colorado profess
if you lower the taxes, people have more money, they spend more money, the federal government takes in more. lou: it will is a result of the growth that it stimulates. but we have to put forward a very important caveat. this president has been in office ends 2009. he has not once performed at the tax code, has not once altered the direction of the tax, spending, and borrowing of the government. romney is talking about reversing all of that. truth is, megyn, without reducing spending and taking control of that deficit and this mountain of debt, there is no amount of taxation available to the most mystical and brilliant economists that would result in that. megyn: you have to question what that something is. they have very different visions. for the record, ronald reagan reduced taxes on the rich and revenues went up. lou: governor romney made it clear that he will work with the democrats. megyn: lou dobbs, thank you so much. the supreme court this week takes up a case that could do away with decades of affirmative action. we will look at this long-standing law and why one property ma
,000 jobs were created last month, and megyn, only 10,000 of those jobs were government. megyn: we have been showing the chart of job creation over the past year or so. back in january, you can see it. look where we were back in january and february. then it falls way down. 45,000 jobs in the month of june. now that 114,000. not great to most economists, but not so great. how do we get to the point where we are at these not so great numbers, but the unemployment rate falls from 8.1% write-down in to 7.8%. :lou: let me smooth out the charge. we have a little below average what we did in 2012. there has been a decline and not an improvement according to the labor department. the survey employers, both government and business, to come up with that number. they have another survey, which is called a household survey. 50,000 folks are called and ask if they have a job or not. megyn: arctic cold calling them? >> they are cold calling them, randomly calling them. the establishment survey, that is almost 150,000. a much more sophisticated and scientific and less volatile survey. megyn: is this 7.8%
